The hotel is a wonderful oasis of calm, easy to get to from Faro airport (so a long weekend is completely doable). As soon as we arrived we felt relaxed and at ease, there has obviously been a great deal of love put into the design of the hotel. Our room (7) was in the garden and had a peaceful terrace area, the bathroom was stocked with REN products too which is always a plus.
The pool is refreshing and was exactly what we needed as the temperature soared to 37 degrees on the day we arrived. Food is also great, grill night was a highlight and the wine from Duoro was spot on. We would recommend hiring a car and investigating all of the nearby beaches, Barril was a personal favourite, also get a cab in the evenings and explore Tavira, Olhao etc. Couldn't fault the recommendations for restaurants and beaches, plus Halley & Tim are lovely as were all of the staff. We'll be back.More
